Wow. Google launched AdSense ten years ago.
Since then AdSense has become a core part of Google’s advertising business. There are currently over two million AdSense publishers, and last year publishers earned over $7 billion from AdSense.
Impressive numbers. I remember when AdSense launched I saw it as a mortal threat to affiliate marketing.
But over the years I’d say AdSense has been complimentary to affiliate marketing. I see the best performance on my sites when I use relevant affiliate text links in content, but AdSense works better than banners for me.
